Anybody who is familiar with the world of logging knows that summer is a busy, busy time so we considered ourselves blessed when Grampa was able to sneak away for a few days to come and hang out with Jaydan and meet Kennedy. AND he misses Granny so horribly while she is with us that he was probably MORE excited to see her.
We had planned a fun camping trip for the first night he was scheduled to be here and, as always seems to be the case when Dad flies, there was a snafu with his flight. Rather than getting in at 3 something, he now wouldn't get in until after 9. I almost canceled reservation for their camp site but Grampa wouldn't dream of breaking baby J's heart, so we forged ahead. We got the access code to the park's security gate (MUCH different than the camping we did growing up, huh?) and dropped him off where Jeff and Jaydan had already set up camp. Jaydan was out for the night, but I wish I could have been there to see his little face when he woke up and his beloved Grampa was there!
We also took a quick trip to Helen, which is always fun and other than that we pretty much just hung out at home. We had a long honey-do list for poor ole Grampa...... when stuff breaks down or falls apart around our house, we just put it aside until Grampa comes again to fix it! So, that kept him pretty busy too. He spend lots of QT playing with his babies and in the blink of an eye, his visit was over! Thanks to you, too, Grampa for all you do! An interesting side note.... it was shockingly cool over the 4th of July in Georgia this year and for some reason the weather always seem to be very mild when Grampa is here. He remarked that he doesn't believe it get that hot here at all! For any of you Georgians that beg to differ, go ahead a post a comment ;)

Some of you know that the fact that I didn't get Kennedy's room painted before she came was my first source of mom-guilt this go-round. I had Jaydan's room DONE about 10 minutes after the ultrasound showed that he was a boy. I just couldn't get myself motivated this time and I felt awful about it. So, I took Jaydan to the sitter's, Daddy was on Kennedy duty and Granny and I got to work. I think it turned out pretty cute (please ignore the hide-a-bed.... I'm hoping it will soon have a nice brown cover... just think how cute it will be then!). What do you think?
